コメント Finding Contentment and FOMO

  • This post seriously relates to me on so many aspects. Thank you for sharing such an insightful and self reflecting post. I too look at my figure shelves whenever I ask stressed. Collecting figures almost single handedly help me get out of stress and depression from being in pandemic isolation for almost 2 years. Even though it's good to look forward, I completely agree with you that we should take the time to really appreciate what we have.

    Even when compared to all the recent releases/purchases, this little one ITEM #665 still gives the most contentment

    FOMO is real but yeah revisiting your collection every once in a while is also a nice feeling.

    I still occasionally check out my shelf and reflected all these past years I spent on building my Fate merch collection. I'm still proud of it, ngl.

    Thanks for writing this—it really speaks to where I’m trying to be in this hobby. I recently cancelled some preorders because I realized that I just didn’t need them. That said, I have a few on my preorder and wish list that I’ve been hoping for since I joined this hobby, so there are things I’m excited about. My future goals revolve around trying to optimize lighting in my setup (really want to try soldering, so it will be totally customized), build dioramas for several sets of my figures, and fix some of the figures that arrived broken or have broken during the years that I’ve had them.

    I often got FOMO but for the past month I've been starting to get pretty content with where my collection is at at the moment.

    Earlier this year I preordered and ended up impulse buying quite a lot of things which led to my room being flooded with merchandise.

    I think it hit me quite recently though as I was storing away some merchandise and figures I didn't want to display anymore due to the lack of space that I'll most likely do the same with the merch I have currently ordered and displayed. That got me to really think about my current pos and made me ask, do I REALLY want this or am I just getting it to satisfy my current interests and fomo?

    This mindset allowed me to cancel a few items on my amiami orders and I have been ordering a lot less now :) (Though the wonhobby announcements yesterday are going to suck my wallet dry for sure haha)

    I actually got out of fig collecting for a couple months because I got slightly overwhelmed by trying to keep up with every little thing, had a couple annoying FOMO moments, and I wanted to hold back spending for a while. Now I'm a lot more picky, and because of that break I've missed some stuff I wanted but this point I'm just like "yknow, whatever man".

    Cross referencing every little site for bonus this, cheapest shipping that and stalking the in stock page just go so irritating to me. And all the invoices i'd get... It made me just not want to see what was available at all. I definitely don't see myself ever quitting this hobby, but damn I already got some big newbie burnout.

    My fig list is super out of date too since it takes a lot of time to keep that stuff updated and track everything. Now I have even more work to do, lol.

    Great Article!

    I'm glad FOMO isn't a issue for me these days, got enough ere as it is to take care of that because it's always "Where am I going to put something new?" that gets rid of FOMO and I end up appreciating what I have here more.
